PRINTEMPS DU LOUVRE
2 500 sqm
New Department Store inside the Carrousel du Louvre
Following the original design for the Carrousel space below the museum areas, Printemps du Louvre gives shape to a second commercial gallery wing beyond the renowned Inverted Pyramid. The project is both a continuation of the galleries and a new prime destination within its surroundings. The pull of the sales area is the liveliness of the installations which allow for the exhibition of contemporary art pieces. The two-story space is structured into a central nave and a transept by the glass volumes and the staircases. The hand-hammered steel surface of the ceiling reflects visitors and their movements in a perspective which recedes into the distance, creating one-of-a-kind visual and shopping experiences.
